Moscow's statements on banning a number of Ukrainian politicians from entering
Moscow's statements on banning a number of Ukrainian politicians from entering Russia are ungrounded and illogical, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.

On Thursday the Russian Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying that in response to Ukraine's decision to prohibit Moscow Mayor Yury Luzhkov from entering Ukraine, Russia announced a number of Ukrainian politicians would not be allowed entry into Russia.

"The decision to limit entrance to Russia is ungrounded, illogical and cannot be viewed as an adequate response to Ukraine's reasonable measures in regard to Yury Luzhkov," the ministry said in a statement. "The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry asks Russia to stop the practice of making ungrounded decisions."

Ukraine's state security services barred Moscow Mayor Luzhkov on May 12 from entering the former Soviet republic over his 'provocative' comments regarding the ownership of the Black Sea city of Sevastopol.

Moscow's mayor made strong calls for the disputed ownership of a Russian naval base in Sevastopol to be handed back to Russia.
